I used to have a Sadowsky UV70 with a set of Nordstrand 70's wind single coil pickups installed. The sound was fantastic; fat, warm, and defined. I used to get lots of complements. Eventually I got rid of that bass and now I have a Sadowsky RV5 Metro with the same Nordstrand 70's wind pickups installed, and although it sounds great, it just doesn't seem to have the same "it" factor that my UV70 had. Also, far less complements from the sound guys I'm working with! Could it be the 60's pickup spacing on the RV5 compared to the UV70, or the 1-1.5lb difference in weight that change the tonal characteristics? Overall I'm looking for some pickups that are a lot more aggressive than the Nordstrand single coils as I think they're too polite in this bass. Any recommendations?
